Piece my buddy did for me, but I love any kind of graffiti art as long as it's good.

I also love classical (Michalangelo, Van Gogh, Monete, etc.) Almost anything from the 1920s to the 1960s, and a couple choice ones from the 80's.

I hate, HATE anything that is either too abstract or too "modern". Like tumbleweeds painted silver and put on display, or a window with broken glass.

That kind of stuff pisses me off.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

I like that Salvador guys stuff... I don't know any art names, and just learnt his a few moments ago.

I don't like picasso or Vahn-go.

But I like stuff like that. :D

I used to know a bitchin artist, he would go into great minute detail but it was also abstract, very vivid imagination he had. Just little stuff you would notice looking at it, it was amazing. :D

I don’t like artists as such but I love medieval buildings and places like St. Paul’s.

And the early photographers and filmmakers. There is one in particular that I like (can’t think of his name right now) but he went around the UK with his camera and took pictures of normal people doing normal things. It wasn’t exciting to look at but it was brilliant to look at and think about.

Then there was another whose video archive was found completely intact and he did the same sort of thing only with moving video. They made a program out of it as well (history program) and it was just amazing. To look back at people from 100 + years back and to watch them all crowed around this man with a camera was brilliant.

It’s the largest collection of film from that period in the world and it only looks at normal people doing their jobs like going down to the mill and sh*t like that.

There was one clip that I remember really well. He was filming from outside the main gate at a mill in Sheffield and all the men were gathering round him then the mill owner came out and moved them all inside to start work.
